Thread: Recommended JP era shows

Holt - 1/13/2002 at 07:25 AM

Get 3 -11-98 Beacon or the 9-12-98 Raleigh. Man, killer second set, You Don't Love Me, Dreams, Blue Sky, In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed!!!!! Jack is flawless as always. I like his solo instrumental disc as well, it has Jaimoe on it.

Other good shows from a Jack point of view...

8/7/97 - great Dreams
9/20/97 - smoking throughout
10/3/97 - awesome lizzie solo
3/14/98 - probably best lizzie solo of all of them!
3/20/98 - another good lizzie and a good high falls!
7/2/98 - cooking throughout
7/4/98 - unbelievably good dreams
9/8/98 - there is a really good copy of this circulating (sbd/aud matrix) and jack cooks on it!
3/28/99 - jacks last show and he is on fire

Holt--e-mail me about that video.

Jack is also very good, as is the whole band, on 03.26.99, the 30th Anniversary show. I agree with Holt's recommendations about the 03.14 and 03.20.98 shows; I was at both and they were flat-out stunning. Anything from either of those Beacon runs is worth having.
I was at Jack's (and Oteil's) second show with the band on 06.21.97. It's probably not the best show all-around, but I have to say that the Dreams from that show is about the most atmospheric thing you're ever going to hear. Jack doesn't play notes on it, he uses the echoes from the arena (Jones Beach is an amphitheater) and volume swells to play the feeling of the song itself. It's cool, and the result is downright spooky. Peace. --Marley


Marley - 2/2/2002 at 05:09 PM

This was a fun research project. I just listened to the 03.14 and 03.20.98 Lizzies for comparison. Both awesome, but I'm still going with the second one (electric version) as my favorite. Dickey's solo on the 14th is better, however. Interesting to note, at least for me, is what I think is a quote from Santana's Soul Sacrifice in the electric version from the 20th.
MY, Jack could tear it up, couldn't he? I also listened to a show from '99, just because I wanted to. That was a great run. Maybe the Les Brers from the 26th will be next. (Damn, I wish that was still in the repertoire.) There's definitely no such thing as a bad Jack show. Consistent excellence is difficult to achieve, but he did it. Much like Duane did. Remember what Butch once said on the old Forum: if Duane were playing today, he'd sound like Jack Pearson.
Happy trading, Holt. Peace. --Marley[Edited on 2/2/2002 by Marley]


Marley - 2/2/2002 at 05:43 PM

Just checking back in to say the Les Brers is good too. Haha.
Peace. --Marley

Hey Marley - that's one of my favourite "quotes" from the Jack years. Another one I really enjoy is on the Dreams from 6/30/98 - Otiel made quite a habit of playing the "All Blues" bassline during dreams when Jack was in the band (although he doesn't do it so often any more) - on 6/30/98 though Jack takes the hint and about 2 mins into his solo he plays the main melody line usually played by Miles Davis on ye olde trumpet. It sounds very cool indeed!!!

Thinking of 3/14/98 by the way, it's a shame it falls apart at the end of Dickeys solo otherwise that would be on a par for being one of my fave lizzies ever. Jack is superb on it, utterly brilliant. It's a shame but that was the first tape I ever got with Jack on it, the first thing I ever heard with him playing on it. It's been tough finding anything as mind blowing as that ever since!!!!

p.s. are you on high speed internet yet!?!?


Marley - 2/12/2002 at 06:29 PM

Jules,
It's certainly a cool version.
Some of my favorite modern takes on Dreams involve that All Blues tease; Derek got into the act with that a few times (maybe even Dickey).
And yes, I now have high-speed access. I'm on a T-1 line at school, and we just recently got a cable modem at home. So I download music and do all kinds of fun stuff that was impossible before I got this laptop. In fact, I'm listening to an entire set from Phil's last show in Chicago- and it's all on one file! Took only a couple of minutes to download. Beautiful stuff. As Raul Julia said in Overdrawn at the Memory Bank, "I'm interfaced!" Peace. --Marley


CanadianMule - 2/13/2002 at 05:00 AM

The show 8/11/98 is awesome. Jack really shines.


rebel - 4/1/2002 at 12:37 PM

8/23/98 remains one of my alltime fave ABB shows.
Especially when you consider Jack had just returned from surgery and had to sit most of the show.


Jack - 6/29/2002 at 06:36 PM

Two I would like to add are : 9/14/93 from Asheville NC with JP sitting in for Dickey.He and Warren have a jazzy go at Liz Reed that is stellar and another fav is 3/06/99 Beacon. JP was one player who could push Dickey to heights previously heard only with Duane Allman.


bocat - 6/30/2002 at 02:38 PM

I just got 6/20/98 and Jack is killer at this show. highly recommended. Also 8/11/98.


Standback27 - 8/2/2002 at 10:38 PM

Let me make a pitch for the 7.4.98 Charlotte show, "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" -> I'll betcha I've listened to this thing (up through Jack's solo, anyway) 50 times, and it gives me chills every time. I read elsewhere about Jack sounding so much like Duane on certain other cuts - this whole solo is that way. Perfect.


Marley - 8/3/2002 at 05:06 AM

He sometimes does sound quite a bit like Duane...other times he doesn't, but he has (to me) similar melodic sensibility. And he's got no end of technique or taste. Wish I could hear him play more often.


Jack - 8/9/2002 at 01:47 PM

Let me add that the 7/4/98 show from Charlotte NC is one of the best Jack era shows I am lucky to have.Good call Standback and Jules! Dreams,Liz Reed and YDLM are stellar,and Jack gets to stretch out.Even some bird calls on Dreams...


Ned38 - 6/8/2003 at 12:27 AM

Yeah:
Jack was/is my favorite since Duane. The guy was liquid! Nobody even comes close IMO

Marley:
I will always remember that Jones Beach show. That Dreams was the most amazing I ever saw bar none. Atmospheric is a good way to put it. He was wayyyyyyyyy out there, serving and vollying those notes off the back of the theater. Letting the music soar into space and then come cascading back down like a meteor shower. Trully inspired piece of work. Even had the bird calls at the end.
He also did a smoking version of Dimples that night too


bluesboy57 - 8/7/2003 at 02:05 AM

I've been listening to the 7/2/98 show at the Sony Blockbuster E-Center in Camden, NJ, which I also attended. Jack's solo on Stormy Monday is breathtaking. I'm starting to think that Jack might just be the best guitarist to ever grace the Allman Brothers Band!!!!!


Niels411 - 8/7/2003 at 06:32 AM

I'll second that!!!


Marley - 8/7/2003 at 03:02 PM

Yeah, my dad and I have said the same at times. The man clearly knows the entirety of the blues like a book.

Jack, good call about 7/4/98.

islalala - 8/25/2003 at 05:47 PM

Anyone got any recomendations for great a great Jack ''High Falls'' or two?

I know one of the 2nd or 3rd nights of the '98 Beacon run was wicked slick, but I can't remember the date exactly...


slidejules - 8/26/2003 at 10:41 AM

3/7/98 was good
as was 3/20/98
as was 10/3/97
as was 9/5/98 (with some nice call and response with Dickey)
as was 7/2/98 (one of only two times Jack played slide on it)
as was 3/15/98

I really worry about myself sometimes!


Peachypair - 9/27/2003 at 11:15 AM

I'm trying to get the trades section going/sharing Jack shows with a T1L1 Jack only thread. See trades section under 'I'm not Crying'

PauliG - 10/10/2003 at 11:38 PM

The riffs in "J.J.'s Alley" on 3/26/99 are just astonishing. (Well, you know Jack's playing is ALWAYS astonishing)...

One of the things I'd like to add is that when I first heard Jack with the ABB in 97, he played somethings (8/16/97) that BLEW my mind, and still do to this day. Particularly in "Liz Reed". I saw him several times after that, once with the GAB in Jan 98. And his playing was equally mind-blowing, but so completely different. I was just astonished at how versitile he is. I also like that as talented as he is, he isn't constantly "showing off" he has so much taste...

Yes, the 93 shows where he fills in for Dickey are great too, Warren & Jack play really well together. I have 3 or 4 of those shows and each one is excellent...


Marley - 10/11/2003 at 02:01 PM

That's a monster JJ's Alley, Pauli. Great call. That was a special night.

CowboyNeil - 11/24/2003 at 07:50 PM

3-20-98 as mentioned is a killer show with accoustic and electric liz reed. I year later to the day 3-20-99 is also an amazing show, Jack really tears into Dimples, holds a single note an incredibly long time. Any Jack show is worth having as he is in my opinion the best to step into Duanes slot. That line up is the closest to the original band in my opinion, Loved it. Not knocking any other lineups as I have 03 Red Rocks on as I type this and the boys were on that nite

Also 30+ years makes me a peach pit, whats up with that?

9/4/98 at the Fox, he was burning for sure

ron_e - 2/27/2004 at 04:18 AM

someone say 'jack pearson' & 'high falls' in the same sentence?

first 5. hi, jules.

i saw the jack version 13 times. the weekend of 3-13 - 3-15-98 (the first peach corps presale, my first beacon show 3rd row center, 2d 4th, 3rd 5th -- lost my voice hollerin' 'you're the man, you show 'em dickey!' by midnight Saturday i was signing), Charlotte 7-4-98, Red Rocks 98, Friday and Saturday at the Fox, and the second weekend of the Beacon in '99. 2 in '97 too, unfortunately early in the summer. it was really clicking there for awhile, but the weekend i was at the beacon, jack was on his way out the door. 3-26-99, man, THAT has some highlights.

sometime when you think it wouldn't be in poor form, i'd love to talk a minute about jack's solo in dreams on 7-4-98. beth and i were very very close, and we remember the moment with an unlikely degree of clarity.

good thread. i can think fo about 15 jack-era shows that have wonderful reputations. incidentally, anyone have the paolo solieri show from late summer '97? listening to that show (and deciding to go to the beacon in 98) really brought me back from the brink of getting off the bus. and i have a sentimental reason for wanting to acquire it.


slidejules - 2/28/2004 at 03:25 PM

Hey Ron! Waddaya mean poor form? I have heard you describe that 7/4/98 dreams solo before and will never tire of hearing about it :-) Go for it mate!


ron_e - 9/3/2004 at 01:23 AM

instead, i'll offer to do the following:
i'll send 1 person 4 copies of the 1 disc High Falls '98 compilation. THAT person will be responsible for mailing it to 3 other people. I sent 12 copies out today to the listserv in honor of Jack's upcoming GABBAFEST appearance, i can do 4 here.

it's 3 versions of HF & 3 more Jack solos from other HF's. 6 Jack solos, not a one like any other. melodic, gorgeous, breathtaking.


bradfordg. - 8/13/2005 at 04:50 AM

Never saw the Jack version of the band,but have many tapes from that era. There is one show that does get overlooked in all of this. It's the 3/21/98 Beacon. There is another Liz Reed that Jackie P. just shreads! I mean his solo is flowing with so much energy,when it comes to Dickey's portion,Betts just lays back and plays some routine licks as if to say,"Jackie owned this one." And the first set closing True Gravity is a stunner as well. Easily to be overlooked from the previous night but still well worth having.


rollingcrowe - 8/14/2005 at 01:22 PM

The show that he did filling in for Derek in Huntsville 5-14-05 is pretty killer!


rockfish23 - 8/20/2005 at 03:58 PM

Not to sound like a broken record, but keep your eyes peeled for an Instant Live from the Rosemont 8/13/05.

Regarding Jack, I may have once been blind, but now I see. Very, very talented.


brofan - 10/18/2005 at 04:20 AM

Yeah, rockfish, that was a good one. The band seemed so loose and elastic with him playing with them that night and Jack played so well off of Derek I didn't miss Warren's absence at all. I know that is almost blasphemy around here (sometimes I think people are more into Warren-worship that actually listening to the music) but it was just a very refreshing show.


PeachNutt - 10/30/2005 at 02:30 PM

you all have great musical tastes.... an excellent place to come for an advice & education...

Jack - 11/7/2005 at 09:07 PM

Two shows from this summer's Jack sit-ins from Toronto Aug.16th. and London Aug.17th. are spectacular.JP hisself has said London was the best of the bunch he did this year. Even had Chuck in Toronto for a way back machine Jessica- at one point I was waiting for Dickey to pipe up" where we at? "...

Brofan,I'm with you that Warren's great but a dose of JP did me a world of good. Closed my eyes a few times and Jack & Derek sounded more like Duane & Dickey than a ANY other guitar combo the band has had since Duane passed..Blasphemey next, I actually prefer Warren with Mule.


jfdorner - 11/7/2005 at 10:55 PM

i also prefer the jack shows this year. the interplay between jack and derek is so refreshing. sounds alot like duane type stuff.


Jer - 3/28/2006 at 12:45 AM

I saw Jack four times all at Red Rocks. To this day I tell friends my favorite Allmans show was 8/7/97 with the main set ending with Dreams. Jack was awesome in his derby jamming away. I seem to recall him hitting some really sweet country licks on "Those Eyes Again" and Change My Way of Living". The next year on 8/14/98 I'll never forget Jack rippin' these other-worldy notes during "Liz Reed" while sitting on a bar stool! Of course his acoustic playing was unreall too! I don't know that I've ever heard anyone one with a better right hand on acoustic. I loved his songs "Everyday" and "I'm Not Crying". In fact, I hope that if the Allmans hit the studio in the near future they invite Jack to laydown at least one of these cuts......


liveillusion - 4/13/2006 at 03:59 PM

If you guys had one or two soundboard type tapes/Cd's to recomend for a person not too familiar with Jack, which ones would it be? Most of the dates on this thread seem to be late 90's shows. I'm not all that familiar with that time of the ABB. Anyway, I appreciate any thoughts.

Mike / Brooklyn


DBetts1 - 7/19/2006 at 02:24 AM

Is anyone willing to do a DVD BnP of some of these shows?


porkchopbob - 8/18/2006 at 03:46 PM

I loved the Jack period, too. A damn shame he's not represented on a commercial release (sit-ins on recent ILs notwithstanding). Maybe for those of us that aren't tapers we can get HTN to leapfrog to that period for the next Archival release.


PeachNutt - 9/4/2006 at 06:28 PM

I wish there were more live Jack Pearson Band things to buy....
and live shows to trade for....JP just is.......


chiliD - 4/1/2009 at 09:20 PM

Sorry to dig up such an old thread....just starting to finally get out & see the site and stray away from pretty much only posting on the "Anything Goes" section.

I just been listening to a show from 7/3/97 from Walnut Creek, NC. (streamed on Sugarmegs.com)

I'm assuming this is a Jack/Dickey/Oteil show? (the playing of "Soulshine" kind of threw me when looking at the overall set list)

Pretty strong show...what I've heard so far which is pretty much just the first set. Nice "Franklin's Tower" tease into "Blue Sky". And, a smokin' hot "Black Hearted Woman". Killer opening of "DWYNM/NMCTB"...one of the better versions of that I've heard in a while.

Looking forward to "High Falls" coming up in a couple of songs.

EDIT (a bit later in the set): MY GOD!!! What a smokin' "Liz Reed" at this show!
